Hi Charley

Hope you're doing OK...
...wheels rollin' & camera clickin' !

You put up a drawing by Rowland Emett a while back...
...was it by Emett ?
...or am I mistaken ?

I was looking to get a book with some of Rowland Emett's drawings in.
The only thing I could find was called 'The Early Morning Milk Train'.
Published around 1977.

You mentioned something about a series of books, I think.
Was that Rowland Emett or someone else.

Sorry Charley...
..pretty cryptic stuff !
Hope you get what I mean.

Cheers

Si.

Did you ever see Bruce Bate's drawings...
...'The Birdwater & Raspberry'...
...some years ago in Garden Railways mag. ?

Like 'em ?

Si  , WC feller.s.

I think the drawings I put up were from "The Frog"..Brian Clarke Saltfrod models..he did quite a  series of little booklets on things Narrow and obscure..to the point of making some or alot of it up..very neat stuff...

The 15 inch gauge to Chasewater or something..very clever..I really enjoy them..I have quite a set...


I been schlepping around Beatty Nevada the past couple of days..between loads...I am considering moving to Beautiful Oasis valley nevada...time will tell...


I found this thing..I think it is a pump..externally driven...belt wheels to gears to recip motion...?..




















AND...an ore car with  a lifting set up made inside..rings for lifting..ALA blondin..'cept over here probably called something less glam...










AND ..Beatty is rather close to the Bomb range...this in a hotel lobby...

That first item is called a "pump jack" and you're correct, it converts the rotary motion of a motor or engine into reciprocating action needed for a piston pump down in a well.

Smaller ones (70-80%) were used on farms where windmills were impractical, to pump domestic water--usually driven with one cylinder gasoline engines.
Farmer would "eyeball" the amount of gas that it would take to fill the water storage tank, and put an appropriate amount of fuel into the engine tank to run the pump long enough. No waste of gas or water.
